The DD2009 has two 5/8 inch NPT ports: one is the "inlet", the second is the "discharge".

The Separator is designated as a Type 3 amalgam separator (filter system). The maximum water flow rate is 1.0 liters per minute. The maximum fillable volume of the separator is calculated to be 360 ml. The separator is installed in the dental vacuum line (HYE line). The DD2009 needs to be changed when the air flow at the HVE tip is no longer adequate, which can be determined with the use of an integrated digital vacuum gauge alarm system. The change out rate varies from 1 to 6 months and depends upon chair activity. The DD2009 is designed to handle a standard dental vacuum of 7 inches of Hg. Instructions for changing of the filter are found at the end of the manual.

Why an Amalgam Separator is Very Important to Use: 

Although mercury in the form of dental amalgam is very stable, amalgam should not be disposed of in the garbage, infectious waste "red bag," or sharps container. Mercury containing amalgam waste · generated in the dental operatory can on occasion meet the requirement of a hazardous waste. Amal gam should not be rinsed down the drain. Some communities incinerate municipal garbage, medical waste, and sludge from wastewater treatment plants. If amalgam waste ends up being incinerated mercury vapor can be released to the environment due to the high temperatures used in the incineration process. Increasingly, local communities are enacting restrictions on the incineration of wastes containing mercury.

*This Disposable system has been tested and passed the ISO 11143 protocol
